Abbass Personal Picture

My top 3 facilitators

Education

Abbass Abass was born in Nazareth in 1976, the youngest of five siblings. He attended the private Sisters of St. Joseph School and was the only student with disabilities in his class. With great faith in his abilities and a commitment to his success, his teachers and family fostered opportunities for Abbass to excel. Abbass went on to earn an undergraduate degree and a Master of Law from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, as well as a Masters in Business Administration and Non-Profit Management from Haifa University.

Accessible communication

Thanks to the Accessible communication I can use me Iphone and personal computer independently.

Attitudes

The Arab community in Israel is still far behind accepting people with disabilities as equal members of society. My close family and friends are the reason I received high education and perused my dreams- they are the owns that allowed me to believe anything is possible in life, and my disability is not an "excuse".
